Here is a screenshot I did not think I’ll see. Lightroom connected and tethered with a Sony A7III. I mean, Sony has been tethering with Capture One for ages, but Lightroom Classic? Uh uh! Mostly because Sony and Adobe never found a way to share the needed codebase.
But now comes Tether Tools, and fr a mere $69.95, give all Sony shooters the capability they always longed for.
A video tells us that Smart Shooter 4 works with Canon and Nikon (ok), and Sony (YAY!).
Along with transferring the photos, the video shows that you can control the camera from Lightroom. Although Smart Shooter 4 will set you back $70, it is currently the only sane option for shooting with a Sony tethered to Lightroom.
So, anyone tested and want to share?
P.S. On the other hand, if you are shooting Sony, you get Capture One for free.
